AJJ Posted May 8, 2013 Share Posted May 8, 2013 According to my GP I have tennis elbow! Despite the fact that I have not played tennis for at least 40 years and as far as I am aware have done nothing to cause this I currently have a left arm that is prone to pain - apparently some sort of repetetive strain caused inflamation of the elbow muscle. The usual ibuprofen medications work to a certain extent as does a rather neat sports band round the elbow. A wise friend and former teacher suggested un relaxed wrists while practicing etc. could be the cause but I do not think that this is the case. I can mostly play without too much pain but my length of playing time before things get 'gummed up' is not that long. I have tried acupunture but this seems not to have had great deal of effect. My GP says it could take a while to go and can not suggest much more than I have tried already. Does anyone here have similar experiences or can anyone offer advice please?
